Welcome Back Email Blast from CASC - January 8, 2018
Posted on 01/09/2018

A snowy welcome back - we hope that everyone had a warm and restful break and are ready for a terrific 2018!


CASC has some exciting events planned for this winter season! The CASC team looks forward to seeing some new faces out at our upcoming CASC meeting on Tuesday, January 16 at 7:00pm in the Staff Room.  Babysitting is provided and the agenda kicks off with an Open Forum for anyone who has questions they wish to raise.  

A few items for your immediate attention:

Online Hot Lunch orders are up and running. 

If you have not made your order yet for Term 2, the first few days of Hot Lunches may not be available to you.  This gives the suppliers a few days to prepare.  Blocked off menus show as red on the order calendar.   Please be aware of when your order begins and inform your child.


Also, if your child does not receive a lunch he/she is expecting, please ask them to ask a teacher to check the report.  We often have extra meals....just in case.


Follow this link to place your order.
